Appeals are appropriate for various kinds of convictions
Appeals are relatively common in criminal cases and occur whenever a person convicted of a crime believes the result was inappropriate based on certain circumstances or events in the trial. A criminal law attorney can help you appeal convictions that come about due to:
- Ineffective representation. Every person charged with a crime has a right to fair and competitive legal representation. If you have reason to believe that your trial lawyer’s ineffectiveness led to your conviction, Mark helps you appeal the result and have it re-evaluated for a new trial.
- Withholding of evidence. In some cases, the prosecution might withhold evidence that would shed some doubt on your guilt. Mark appeals for a retrial to present this evidence to give you the potential for an acquittal or dropped charges.
- Unfair sentencing. The U.S. government provides all judges with sentencing guidelines that must be followed in criminal trials. If your sentence violates these guidelines or is excessive in any way, Mark fights for you to seek more appropriate terms.
- Improper evidence. If you believe that evidence used by the prosecution was collected with an invalid warrant or through an improper search, Mark helps you to appeal your case, invalidate the evidence and possibly get your case dismissed.
